A review of metrics of distribution with application to Conservation Units under Canada's Wild Salmon PolicyDownload
Metrics describing the distribution of individuals among groups and across the landscape can provide information on the resilience of a population that may not be apparent from abundance information alone. The distribution of spawners has therefore been recommended as an indicator of the...
Aphrocallistes vastus Trinity transcriptome
Sponges (Porifera) are among the earliest evolving metazoans. Their filter-feeding body plan based on choanocyte chambers organized into a complex aquiferous system is so unique among metazoans that it either reflects an early divergence from other animals prior to the evolution of features...
This the data associated with the manuscript: Auger-Méthé, M, AE Derocher, DA DeMars, MJ Plank, EA Codling, MA Lewis. Evaluating random search strategies in three mammals from distinct feeding guilds. Journal of Animal Ecology. In Press. The data is the step lengths and turning angles...
Code and data for "Biased correlated random walks and invasive spread: Insights from the alga Codium fragile"
Code and data for "Biased correlated random walks and invasive spread: Insights from the alga Codium fragile"Download
Invasive species are a major threat to global biodiversity. Understanding what influences the spread of invasive species after introduction is key to minimizing impacts on native ecosystems and has been the subject of much applied and theoretical work. Thus far, models of spread have not...
Cost of filtration DATA for 5 demosponges - Data associated with: Ludeman, Reidenbach and Leys - JEB 2017 The energetic cost of filtration by demosponges and their behavioural response to ambient currentsDownload
Abstract: Sponges (Porifera) are abundant in most marine and freshwater ecosystems and as suspension feeders they play a crucial role in filtering the water column. Their active pumping enables them to filter up to 900 times their body volume of water per hour, recycling nutrients and coupling a...
Data associated with Grant et al (MER) "Suspended sediment causes feeding current arrests in the glass sponge Aphrocallistes vastus"Download
Bottom-contact trawling generates large, moving clouds of suspended sediments that can alter the behaviour of organisms adjacent to trawl paths. While increased suspended sediment concentrations (SSCs) are known to cause glass sponges to arrest filtration in lab studies, the response of sponges...
